Welcome aboard, rajulianojones

I appreciate you checking in with us. Helping out with the employee's paycheck is my priority.

When creating a paycheck, let's ensure first if you've already updated the latest tax table, so you can automatically create a paycheck with tax deductions in QuickBooks. Once done, you can void and recreate the transaction if it's not a Direct Deposit (DD) paycheck to correct the payroll information and tax deductions. 

If the employee was underpaid, you'll need to add the underpayment on the next pay period. If overpaid, you can deduct the overpayment on the next pay period. Then, process a payroll liability check payment for the outstanding balance in QuickBooks. This article will outline the details: Set up and pay scheduled or custom (unscheduled) liabilities.

On the other hand, if it is a DD check, you'll need to void first the paycheck before the cut off time (5 PM PST, two banking days before the check date). Then, recreate it and process a liability check payment in QuickBooks. 

As always, you can contact our QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Support Team if you'd like someone to be with you as you go through these steps.

Please keep me posted on how things go once you've tried the steps. Just leave a comment below and I'll be sure to get back to you. I hope you have a great day ahead.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
